Dhan katar gaan


Organizer: Ajeo Sanhati

Theme: Harvest Music (dhan katar gaan)

In rural Bengal during harvesting season when farmers reap the paddy from the field they sing songs while working. Specially in month of January, in Bengal we observe Nabanna festival (literally mean Naba-new, Anna- paddy). A festival of new food grains. For this reason the pandal has been made as store house or container of paddy that we find in every household in rural Bengal with paddy itself. Apart from this we have also used famous clay-horse (made with burnt soil) from Bishnupur district. Here Lakshmi elder daughter of devi Durga has been seen riding on elephant. Ornaments and hair of all the idols are made with paddy.
